Russell Names Director of Wirehouse Channel Distribution

Russell Investments appointed Laurie Marchel, director, wirehouse channel distribution, for its U.S. adviser-sold business. 

In this newly created role, Marchel will be responsible for developing relationships with wirehouses that have not worked with Russell before. Marchel joined the company in early May and reports to Michael Winnick, Managing Director, U.S. Sales and Partnerships.

Prior to joining Russell, she was a senior vice president at Dreyfus Investments, responsible for tactical integrations of strategic initiatives with key distributors in the broker/dealer and independent channel.  She has also served as managing director, national accounts at Principal Financial Group and WM Group of Funds, where she was responsible for the relationship management team within mutual fund and separately managed account third-party distribution in the national, independent, and bank channels.

Russell partners with wirehouses and other financial intermediaries to deliver its investment insights and solutions to individual investors.
